Missing Teeth? You’re At Risk for Weak Jawbone


For various reasons, the jawbone can begin to lose its density, referred to as “bone resorption”. If left untreated by a dentist, such a condition can lead to potentially serious consequences.

One cause of bone resorption involves a traumatic injury (such as teeth that become damaged from a physical impact). Other factors include osteoporosis and advanced gum disease.

The good news is that bone resorption can be treated. For example, replacing lost teeth (with a dental implant or bridge) will help to prevent jawbone loss.

It is also crucial to proactively treat the first signs of gum disease with the help of a professional. Simply stated, it is much better to address any minor issues before they devolve into more worrying scenarios.

Here are some key takeaway points:

  • Bone resorption involves the loss of jawbone density over time.
  • Causes include injuries, missing teeth and gum disease.
  • Follow your dentist’s advice about bone resorption, to prevent worse complications.
